Question Botanical illustration style coloured tree

So, i've been planning this for about five years now (I promised myself i'd wait that long to see if my idea changed).
It hasn't so...it's time to get hunting for the right tattooist.

Relevant info:
This is going to be my first tattoo.
It's go big or go home time. I really don't do anything by halves and as I am now 30 and have waited all this time, i don't want a tiny tattoo that would age badly and I would regret later.
I'm quite particular about styles etc.
I'm thinking about it being on the top of one thigh. I have sizable thighs as I used to play roller derby, I now work in a bar and I run up and down stairs with boxes of spirits, so they aren't going to shrink any time soon.

What I want is a tree. A botanical illustration style or watercolour in style, possibly a mix, sort of a cross between these two styles:

I want it to really pop though, rather than being quite flat on the skin if that makes sense.
Colour is a must, want something really bright, a tree with leaves and fruit/flowers/birds/butterflies depending on scale and feasibility.
I'm thinking thigh because I want to have it so it's not visible everyday (I wear trousers generally) unless I choose.

Does anyone have any artists to suggest? I've spent quite a while having a look around, and I haven't found quite the right artist so any help would be great
Cheers!

Some of my personal favorite illustrative artists are Tiny miss becca (@s6girl) and Toby Gawler (@tattoosbytoby) at Jayne Doe and @kate_selkie ...cant't really help you with any watercolor artists though as its not really my thing

Yes - for the style you're talking about, that mix of botanical precision and watercolour-splatter, it's got to be Lianne Moule. There's really no-one else like her for that sort of work.

It's one of those things where I have a specific idea in my head but it's very difficult to describe

Maybe Kym Munster would fit in your expectation, she does quite well on strong lines and watercolor
